The OPT-AMP-C card is a 20-dB output power, C-band, DWDM EDFA amplifier/preamplifier. It contains mid-stage access loss for a Dispersion Compensation Unit (DCU). To control gain tilt, a VOA is used. The VOA can also be used to attenuate the signal to the DCU to a reference value. The amplifier module also includes the OSC add (TX direction) and drop (RX direction) optical filters.
The OPT-AMP-C card supports 80 channels at 50-GHz channel spacing in the C-band (that is, the 1529 nm to 1562.5 nm wavelength range). When an ONS 15454 has an OPT-AMP-C card installed, an OSCM card is needed to process the OSC. You can install the OPT-AMP-C card in Slots 1 to 6 and 12 to 17. Slots 2 to 6 and Slots 12 to 16 are the default slots for provisioning the OPT-AMP-C card as a preamplifier, and slots 1 and 17 are the default slots for provisioning the OPT-AMP-C card as a booster amplifier.
The Cisco 15454 OPT-AMP-C cmplifier card features Fast transient suppression, Nondistorting low-frequency transfer function, Mid-stage access for DCU, Constant pump current mode (test mode), Fixed output power mode (mode used during provisioning), Constant gain mode, ASE compensation in Constant Gain and Constant Output Power modes, Programmable tilt, Full monitoring and alarm handling capability, Gain range with gain tilt control of 12 to 24 dB, Extended gain range (with uncontrolled tilt) of 24 to 35 dB, Full monitoring and alarm handling with settable thresholds, OSRI, and ALS.
